Kenyan Men Empowerment Network (KEMEN)
Kenyan Men Empowerment Network (KEMEN) is an association of Kenyan men living in the diaspora. The group aims to create a forum where Kenyan men in diaspora address issues that affect them and find appropriate solutions to solve them. Through the KEMEN platform, the association engage, inform and educate the community of Kenyan men on how to address the challenges of their daily lives. The ability to generate, access, and use information has become a key factor in personal, social, and economic growth. That’s why through free flow and sharing of information, this forum will expand its global outreach to the diaspora society in reshaping our personal, education, and social activities and values.
The mission of the group is to bring the Kenyan men living in Diaspora together. The group seeks to address the issues faced by the Kenyan men when they are away from home and help in the celebrating and encouraging them to effectively address the challenges of the community.
Our vision is to create a network where all the members get to interact and know each other, share ideas and simply be each other brother’s keeper. This will play an increasingly vital role in empowering individuals, communities to maximize the benefits of the information shared. Men the diaspora face various challenges and this group will address these challenges through learning, collaboration and mentorship.
The strategy is to ensure Kenyan men in the diaspora find a leaning shoulder and a friend to guide them through when they face various issues while living in the diaspora. By traditional and societal measures of success, men and the boy child are slipping away. They are disproportionately affected by the social and economic downturn – that may keep burning until it is hard to put off the fire.
KEMEN community is us, is for us and about us, so let’s KEMEN – let’s Talk About Us, Communicate with Us and Know Us. Being part of KEMEN is getting to understand men, you and us, so let’s KEMEN.
